Dior’s dresses to show at exhibition in Dubai
01 November, 2015
Over 60 handmade miniature versions of classic Christian Dior designs will go on display in The Dubai Mall this month in an exhibition tracing the history of the French design house. The replica dresses and suits featured in Le Theatre Dior, running from 9-24 November at Fashion Catwalk Atrium in The Dubai Mall, were made in Dior’s haute couture ateliers, using the exact techniques that are used to make their full-sized dresses. The same fabrics as used on the original dresses were sought out, and embroidery – done by hand – was scaled down so that everything is in proportion.
